  • Beautiful lake and surrounding mountains. Crystal clear water and always cold. Nice picnic areas along with swimming areas. Brandy creek is a must see while in the area.
  • Clean, Pretty , and overall well taken care of. Fun to visit. Hiking kayaking swimming boating you name it.
  • Amazing views - town was flooded to build dam and apparently can scuba dive to see ruins. View is world class
  • Beautiful lake and parks. Came here 3 times in one week because it's so calm, clear and enjoyable for the family. Clean amenities and easy access, particularly to Brandy Creek beach. Has anyone noticed that the sand in the lake SHINES!?!
  • Whiskeytown Lake’s beautiful crystal-clear waters, surrounded by mountain peaks, are perhaps the most prominent feature of the park. However, water-based recreation is only a small part of what the park has to offer. The 39,000 acres surrounding the lake hold four waterfalls, pristine mountain creeks, 70 miles of trails, and opportunities to explore the history of the California Gold Rush.
